Pigadia is the main town of the Island of Karpathos.  There are a variety of restaurants, small shops, and supermarkets open at various times throughout the day and evening.  During the tourist season there are all kinds of activities both day and night.  At Pigadia you may rent motor bikes and cars to drive around the island.  From here you can also take ferry boats to cruise to other parts of the island.  There are internet cafes available if you feel the need to keep in touch with the outside world !

Historic town where citizens live in the old ways and culture.

To visit the quaint and traditional island town of Olympos, with its traditional windmills and Karpathian pastries called macaroons, you may use the ferry boat that leaves from the harbor of Pigadia at 9:30 a.m. and arrives at Diafani where you will take the shuttle bus to Olympos.  The ferry boat returns to Pigadia at 6:30 p.m.

Kira Panagia

This beach is named after the Virgin Mary.  Rather than pebbles, it is a beautiful sandy beach.  Tourists and native Karpathians alike enjoy this beach since it is close to Pigadia.  There is a rock here that is safe and good for diving into the sea if you want to try something different.  The water here is fairly deep so you do want to be careful.  Kira Panagia has a couple of restaurants and hotels if you prefer to stay on the beach rather than in the main town.
